REDS MARCH IN MANCHESTER

It will come as no great surprise that the Tory conference in Manchester has been met with hate and bile from the intolerant left.  Green fanatics, trans clowns and Remainiac Steve Bray (aka Drunk Steve from the Valleys) have all been in attendance (the latter deploying his usual tactic of screaming abuse at Tory members in the street).  However, it was the appearance of a bunch of black clad, masked up, red flag bearing individuals that won the prize for most sinister stunt.

Click below for the video.


This video clip has drawn a lot of views on social media, due in no small part to the left-wing International Magazine.  It's interesting to note that while the magazine positions itself as an unapologetically communist outlet, the video does not show the banner carried at the head of the march.

This is the banner.


The viral tweet that carried the video declares: "Workers did not welcome the Conservative Party's annual conference in Manchester".  Leaving aside the fact that Manchester is Britain's third largest city and only a few dozen 'workers' decided to unanimously dress in black, mask themselves and march under a communist banner - how many of these supposedly 'working class' activists are actually 'workers'?  Their chant "Victory to the working class" rings a little hollow if those chanting it are actually jobless layabouts who live on benefits provided by the same government they claim suppresses them!

Of course this is just conjecture.  If they are true to their stated principles, they can simply unmask themselves and post selfies on the production line they don't work on.

LISA'S ENOCH MYTH

Lisa Nandy told a BBC Question Time audience on Thursday that she 'grew up in this city [Manchester] in the 1980s in the shadow of Enoch Powell'.  She then embarked on a two minute defence of multiculturalism and mass immigration, while delivering a broadside at Tory cuts.  The full clip can be seen below.


The problem with Nandy's monologue is that it begins with a lie.  Enoch Powell may have cast a long 'shadow', but his famous speech actually took place in 1968 - eleven years before she was born.  His political career was all but over in the 1970s and he spent most of the 1980s as an Ulster Unionist, in virtual exile across the sea in Northern Ireland.  A long shadow indeed.  Powell departed the House of Commons for the last time in 1987, when Lisa was just seven years of age.

This is what is called clutching at straws.

STARMER: WE DON'T WANT TO DIVERGE FROM EU


Keir Starmer's veneration of the European Union is no big secret, but just how much closer his government would drag us back towards membership remains unclear.  Last week he sparked confusion when he said he would seek a deal with the EU on migrants, in which the EU would accept 'some returns' while Britain would accept an unspecified number from the EU.  This led to Tory claims that he was going to allow up to 100,000 cross from the continent (not much change from the Tory record to be fair!).

Starmer said that figure was 'complete garbage', but refused to be pushed on what the number might be.  When asked about numbers, Labour's Pat McFadden said ominously: "I don’t think you can predict what the numbers will be when they’re growing the way they have been in recent years."  So it'll probably be an orchestrated invasion on the scale that the US is currently experiencing at its southern border!

In addition to his proposed migrant exchange deal, further comments by Starmer have been exposed by Sky News, proposing a much closer relationship with the EU.  Starmer made the comments last weekend at a globalist conference of centre-left leaders in Canada, telling delegates that a Britain seeking to 'diverge and do things differently to our EU partners' was set on 'conflict'.  "We don't want to diverge", he added.

Watch the clip below.


Judging from these comments, it seems that a Starmer-led government would put Britain on the same course as the EU - to do as they do, regardless of whether or not that is right for Britain.  Such a direction would render Brexit meaningless, with the kind of abject disdain that we can expect from ardent Remainers.  Same old Starmer, same old Labour.

A WELSH REBELLION?

A petition set up on the Welsh Senedd website has quickly become the most signed in the history of Welsh government.  Having gathered more than 100,000 signatures since Sunday, it is - not surprisingly - about Mark Drakeford's absurd 20 mile per hour speed limit.

The daft law designates a default 20mph limit for every road in a built-up area, with a handful of exceptions where local authorities have applied for exemptions.  The law was brought in on Sunday and affects around 3 per cent of all Welsh roads.  Needless to say, the law has provoked widespread dismay among drivers and the many businesses who will suffer as traffic backs up and deliveries are delayed.


The petition against 20mph has - at the time of writing - surpassed a quarter of a million signatures.  That's a whopping eight per cent of the entire population of Wales and far outstrips the previous record, which was set in 2020 and again, in opposition to another outrageous Drakeford imposition.  During the scamdemic, Drakeford declared a two week 'firebreak' lockdown and ordered supermarkets to bar the sale of non-essential items.  This led to a bizarre situation in which people were allowed to buy wine, beer and spirits (already subject to astronomical price rises thanks to Drakeford's minimum alcohol price) while being unable to purchase clothes for their children.  The petition against this decree garnered almost 68,000 signatures, a figure now dwarfed by the 20mph petition.  A Facebook group set up in opposition to 20mph has swelled to almost 50,000 members.

The 20mph law is inspired by the same mindset that gave Londoners ULEZ and increasing numbers of UK cities 'clean air zones'.  It has nothing to do with health and everything to do with the imposition of so-called '15 minute cities' where our movements are controlled by the state.  We can but hope the Welsh rise up and fight 20mph just as the infamous 'blade runners' are doing against ULEZ in Greater London.

Some of the new 20mph signs have already been vandalised

ABBOTT'S MED AT LEE

There is one MP you can always rely on to wade into a debate concerning race or immigration - our Diane.  Abbott joined many of her former Labour colleagues in condemning Tory deputy chair Lee Anderson's remarks about migrants refusing to board the Bibby Stockholm vessel.  Anderson had told the Daily Express: "If they [the migrants] don't like barges then they should f*** off back to France."

Abbott initially tweeted that Anderson's comment represented 'a new low' for the Tories.  However, she followed up with a trademark clumsy tweet two days later.  Exploiting a breaking news story about the death of 41 migrants in the Mediterranean Sea, Abbott wrote that they had 'f***** off to the bottom of the sea'.


The tweet was soon deleted, but not before it had been screen-shotted and shared widely on Twitter.  Diane Abbott is trending on the platform as we type this article and there aren't many commentators speaking up in her defence.

EDDIE LOOKS SOUTH FOR NEXT FAILURE


Perennial Labour failure Eddie Izzard has launched a fresh bid to get selected as a general election candidate.  Izzard, who is now bizarrely referred to as she/her in mainstream media, is seeking the nod for Brighton Pavilion, currently held by the Green Party.  Eddie was last seen trying to get selected for the safe Labour seat of Sheffield Central.  He came a distant second in a ballot of local members.

Izzard has tried multiple times to gain official status in the party.  He twice failed to get elected to Labour's ruling National Executive Committee, although he briefly managed to sit on it by default, after the resignation of Christine Shawcroft in 2018.  A few months later he was voted out.  A bid to be Labour's candidate for London mayor also came to nothing.

Izzard launched his latest bid to join the Westminster gravy train in a video posted on social media.  Ironically, he signs off by copying the famous MAGA slogan of the hated Trump: "Let's make Brighton Pavilion Labour again".  The constituency hasn't had a Labour MP since 2010 when Caroline Lucas of the Green Party took it.  Since then she has increased the Green majority with each successive election, which currently stands at an impressive 19,940.  Although Lucas is standing down, her replacement will be former party leader Siân Berry and Izzard will have his work cut out to overturn such a commanding lead - that's if he even manages to get the nomination in the first place.

Brighton Pavilion, 2019 General Election

Caroline Lucas (Grn) 33,151 (57.2%) +4.9%
Adam Imanpour (Lab) 13,211 (22.8%) -4.0%

BEEB'S HUMILIATING FARAGE CLIMBDOWN


In a rare admission of fake news, the BBC have issued a humiliating public apology to Nigel Farage.  Three weeks ago BBC News reported that Farage's bank account at Coutts had been closed because he 'fell below the wealth threshold required' to hold an account there.  The BBC story basically relayed a source at the bank itself, without any attempt to get at the truth or lend Farage's side of the story any validity at all.  Farage had suggested that he had been targeted because of his political beliefs and cited failed attempts to acquire banking facilities with several other banks as further proof that he was being singled out.

Thanks to his persistence and huge GB News platform, Farage later proved that Coutts decision was political and last week he received a public apology from NatWest, who own Coutts.  However, no apology was forthcoming from the BBC - despite presenter Ros Atkins having admitted on air that their story was 'not accurate'.  The original BBC headline was also subtly changed and the online story edited to account for its 'not being accurate'.

BBC headline, as it appeared before July 21

Amended BBC headline on July 21

Farage was not going to let either matter drop quietly from the headlines, both his treatment at the hands of the banks and the response of the mass media establishment.  Farage had been mocked by several so-called journalists in the days after he went public.  Kay Burley of Sky News used her Twitter account to pour scorn over Farage.  Ex-BBC reporter Jon Sopel referred to Farage as 'a bit of a Charlie'.


Wonder how Kay would feel if one day she is refused banking facilities or has her digital currency withheld for such a heinous crime as reporting the truth (for once) or, perhaps, a lockdown violation?


Jon was later forced into a humiliating apology after Farage did some mockery of his own...


Totally reprehensible indeed, but a sign of things to come if the globalists get their way and replace cash with programmable Central Bank Digital Currencies.  Will people like Jon stand up and be counted when his fellow countrymen and women are denied access to their digital handouts if they use it to buy meat or leave their 15 minute neighbourhoods?

Meanwhile, Farage kept up the pressure on the Beeb and on Monday he received a written apology from Deborah Furness, the head of BBC News.  The man behind the fake news story - the BBC's business editor Simon Jack - apologised by way of Twitter...


Farage was understandably very happy with the BBC apologies and made the most of it on Monday's edition of his GB News show.  His fight with NatWest/Coutts will continue and his monologue (see video below) shows that they have turned martyr into crusader.  Political discrimination by banks and other corporate entities, sponsored by very powerful globalist figures through their sinister ESG score, must be fought and exposed head on.  In Nigel Farage they have created a very public and vociferous opponent and we at BTLP lend him our most wholehearted support.

BY-ELECTIONS 20.07.23


The comprehensive Tory disaster that was widely anticipated on Super Thursday did not materialise thanks to a surprise result in the one seat that, on paper, they were most likely to lose.  A backlash against Khan's despicable ULEZ expansion saved them in Uxbridge, albeit with a reduced majority - down from 7,210 in 2019 to just 495.  Despite the backlash, Labour still piled on almost six percentage points.  Everyone else lost their deposit.

In the other two parliamentary elections, the Conservatives suffered crushing defeats.  In North Yorkshire they lost a seat they had held since its inception in 2010, with Labour overturning a 2019 majority of 20,137.  Their 25-year-old candidate comfortable surged past his Tory opponent with a 4,151 majority of his own, instantly replacing Nadia Whittome as the new Baby of the House.  The third placed Green Party candidate was the only other to save his deposit.

In Somerset the Lib Dems ploughed resources into a seat they had previously held between 1997 and 2015.  Since then the Tories had created a solid majority which stood at 19,213 in 2019.  On Thursday the Lib Dems decimated the Conservative lead and returned to Somerton and Frome with an 11,008 majority.  Again, the Green Party saved their deposit in third place.

Turnout was predictably low in all three seats: 44.8% in Selby, 44.2% in Somerton and 46.2% in Uxbridge.

LABOUR MPs AND THE TRANS CON

A violent trans convict who shared a platform with three Labour MPs is back in prison this week after he told a crowd: "If you see a TERF, punch them in the f***ing face".  'Sarah Jane Baker' was addressing a 'trans pride' event in London earlier this month and made the remark whilst waving a communist Antifa flag.  He was arrested after the speech and later pleaded not guilty to a public order offence.

A TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist) is an insult the left use to label genuine feminists ie. those who believe a woman can't have a penis.  

Three far left Labour MPs shared a platform with Baker during a trans rally in January.  Olivia Blake (Sheffield Hallam), Lloyd Russell-Moyle (Brighton Kempton) and Nadia Whittome (Nottingham East) addressed a trans rally outside Downing Street, during which the crowd chanted: "F*** Keir Starmer" and "Eat shit Keir Starmer".  A Labour spokesman later claimed that the MPs were not aware of who Baker was and had left the scene prior to the offensive chanting.  It certainly appeared at the time that Starmer's assertion that a woman can have a penis, fell on deaf ears.

Baker (circled) alongside Labour MPs Russell-Moyle, Blake (obscured by
loudspeaker) and Whittome

Baker was initially jailed in 1989 for the kidnap and torture of his father's stepson.  Baker, then known by his birth-name Alan, abducted the 19-year-old from his Surrey home as part of a family feud.  Alongside his brother and another man, Baker took the teenager at knifepoint to a squat where he was tortured for 12 hours.  The victim was beaten, slashed with a knife, burnt with cigarette butts and forced to perform oral sex on his captors.  He was then tied up and dumped in a cupboard.  Prosecutors said he would probably have died there had it not been for an occupant of the squat who found him unconscious.

Baker, who is now 53, went on to spend three decades inside after he was found guilty of the attempted murder of another inmate.  During his initial seven year sentence for the kidnap, Baker broke into a fellow inmate's cell and tried to strangle him.  It was during this extended stay that Baker renamed himself 'Sarah' and claims to have cut off his testicles.  He was released in 2019 and told the trans rally in January that he wanted to become an MP, after which he would invite his trans friends to 'smoke a spliff' and other drugs in Parliament.

Baker pictured last week waving an Antifa flag, as he encouraged a crowd to
'punch a TERF in the face'

MailOnline reports that Baker has now been returned to a male prison, despite identifying as a woman.  For the purposes of consistency we have referred to Baker as he/him throughout this article as he is a biological male.  What a Clown World we find ourselves in right now...

STAGE INVASION FOR STARMER

Keir Starmer was confronted by a pair of climate extremists as he gave a speech in Kent on Thursday morning.  The pair of youngsters were stood directly behind Starmer as he spoke about education, but waited patiently until the Labour leader was in full flow before unfurling their banner.  Starmer floundered and turned from side to side awkwardly as the pair demanded that he reinstate his pledge to commit £28billion per year in fighting what they call 'climate change'.

"Which side is the Labour party on?" the female asked.  "We're on the side of economic growth" Starmer replied, and then went on to plead with them to let him continue with his speech.  It was a full agonising minute before the protesters were removed.

Watch the full awkward exchange below.


Unlike recent headline-grabbing stunts, these were not Just Stop Oil fanatics.  They were from a group calling itself 'Green New Deal Rising', another bunch of useful idiots serving the establishment whether they are aware of it or not.  The term 'green new deal' has been around for a while and is a buzz word for net zero fanatics on the far left.  Needless to say, their Twitter profile is followed by several far left Labour MPs, including Dickie Burgon, Ian Lavery, Clive Lewis, Zarah Sultana and Nadia Whittome.  Jeremy Corbyn is also a follower.

One of the protesters - Sophia Cunningham, who looks like a cross between Deirdre Barlow and Ash Sarkar - later complained quite rightly that Starmer did not fulfill his on-stage promise to speak to them after his speech.  A quick u-turn indeed, even for Sir Squeaky.

The greatest irony here is that despite their perceived 'climate' injustices, PM Starmer will impose - or attempt to impost at least - a version of net zero that would probably curl their toes.  That is, unless they are already vegan, don't fly anywhere, never go on holiday, despise cash transactions, own nothing, hate their own liberty and crave state subjugation.  In that case they will lap up the tyranny that Starmer (and Sunak, given the chance) has in store for them.

JUST STOP OIL: THE USEFUL IDIOTS

Recent footage of police officers jumping in to defend Just Stop Oil extremists begs the question: Who is giving the orders?  Richey discusses the phenomenon and the bigger picture in our latest YouTube video, watch below.

THE PROBLEM WITH ABBOTT (AND STARMER)


Keir Starmer has declared that Diane Abbott's letter to Sunday's Observer was 'anti-Semitic'.  This likely signals the end of Abbott's career as a Labour MP, with the removal of the party whip set to become permanent, as it has with Jeremy Corbyn.  However, this may not be the end of the parliamentary road for Abbott.

Like Corbyn, she has a huge majority - bigger, in fact - at 33,188 compared to Corbyn's 26,188.  Corbyn has already suggested he will stand as an independent in the next general election and will almost certainly win.  While most MPs who stand against their old parties tend to crumble without the party name, Corbyn and Abbott have represented their constituencies for decades (Corbyn since 1983 and Abbott since 1987).  During that time they have built commanding majorities and are prominent names, regardless of whether or not you regard them as archetypal 'loony left'.

The Socialist Campaign Group of far left MPs have not faired well under Starmer's leadership.  In addition to the removal of Corbyn and Abbott, a third London MP - Sam Tarry - was deselected following one of Labour's 'trigger ballots'.  Yet another far left London MP - Apsana Begum - also faces a reselection ballot later this year.  A trigger ballot to remove Liverpool MP Ian Byrne ultimately failed.

The left have not surprisingly challenged the legitimacy of these trigger ballots, with questions surrounding electronic voting and alleged dirty tricks.  However, there was little public sympathy for Diane Abbott from her comrades this week.  Not a word from the Socialist Campaign Group, nothing from McDonnell and Sultana, not even Dickie Burgon or Corbyn himself piped up in her aid.

They all knew that Abbott had only herself to blame and any association with her could put their own careers on the line.  Her absurd letter to the Observer was steeped in her own prejudices and stupidity, gifting Starmer the opportunity to kick her out.  Within hours of the Observer hitting the newsstands, Abbott published the following apology to her social media accounts.  It was a desperate last ditch attempt to save the whip, but there was no salvation.


The third paragraph, in which she bemoans an 'error', only confirmed that she had consciously written the words - regardless of whether it was a 'draft' or not.  Her greatest error was in submitting the letter full stop, but of course her own prejudice got the better of her.  She simply could not tolerate a stance that suggested anyone other than black people suffer racism.  Of course Diane, from the white slave trade to the gas chambers - whites and Jews have not been subjected to racism, merely 'prejudice'.  It was her inclusion of Jewish people that lost her the whip - because, as we know only too well, white people have no value in today's Labour Party, whether that be on the far left or the centre left.

Her letter can be seen in full below.


Still, if Diane does lose her seat at the next election, she will do so at the age of 70+, having spent more than three decades on the Westminster gravy train.  Not bad for a black woman who complains that black people are subjected to racism 'all their lives'.

As for Starmer, we see you.  Four years ago you campaigned to elect this woman as our Home Secretary.  You campaigned to have Jeremy Corbyn our PM.  We see you.

TURN THEM OFF

If you are not by now aware of it, at 3pm on Sunday 23 April smart phones across the UK will sound a siren accompanied by an alert from the government, purportedly a test for an 'emergency alert system'.

Of course this has little to do with emergencies and everything to do with preparing you for a digital social credit system further down the line.  An unnamed government official reportedly stated earlier this month: "We do expect the use of the system to broaden out".  It's a bit like when they told us it was 'just three weeks to flatten the curve' and before we knew it they were forcing masks on children and mandating potentially fatal injections.  Tyranny does not happen overnight, but it is stirring once more all around us.  Think ULEZ, clean air zones, LTNs, electric cars and all the other schemes they are implementing in order to prevent you from moving freely.

An alert on your phone may sound like a minor intrusion, but it is part of a much bigger picture.

You can opt out of these alerts (for now) by blocking them in your phone settings.  You'll need to do this before 3pm on Sunday, alternatively you can switch off your phone for a few minutes.

LABOUR CAN'T ADD UP

Labour have been mocked over an attack meme in which their sums don't add up.  The meme is headed 'Cost of the Tories' and features a receipt that lays the blame for the cost of lockdown firmly in Tory hands (overlooking and ignoring the fact that Labour supported each and every lockdown).  However, the receipt's total cost doesn't quite match the itemised sums above it, which total £3,480 - not more than £3,500 as is shown.

The meme was posted on the party's social media accounts - including Facebook and Twitter - and subsequently shared by branches and activists up and down the country.  Despite being mocked over its false accounting, the meme was still live at the time of writing.


Labour may have the receipts, but they don't add up!

NANNY STATE ALERT

On Sunday we produced an impromptu YouTube video in response to the UK government's dreadful 'emergency alert' announcement.  On the evening of April 23 they have scheduled a 'test alert' that will be sent to all mobile phones in the UK, no doubt scaring the bejeesus out of many of our elderly citizens who will be wondering why on earth their device is suddenly screaming at them.  This sinister move is just another step towards what Klaus Schwab describes as the 'fourth industrial revolution' - otherwise known as the Great Reset or Agenda 2030.  It has nothing to do with safeguarding citizens.  If anything, citizens need to be safeguarded against the state - the nanny state.

As alluded to in the previous video, Richey may have got a taste for presenting.  See for yourself whether or not he's getting the hang of it...


There is a potential alternative to 'dismantling your phone' as Richey puts it.  On both Apple and Android phones there is an option in settings to block emergency alerts.  Whether or not this will be effective against the deep state's alerts remains to be seen.  For Apple users you can find instructions here.  Android users will need to enter their settings and search for either 'Public safety messages' or 'Wireless emergency alerts'.

THE MONTH IN CARTOONS - NOVEMBER 2022

The penultimate edition of The Month in Cartoons is here.  There's midterm action, Ron versus Don, Hancock Down Under, a political World Cup, COP27 scammers, the G20 minus Putin, industrial action galore, an austerity budget, bad news for Wee Nippie, anti-lockdown protests in China and much, much more.

Watch below or on YouTube.


The December edition of The Month in Cartoons will be our last.  Richey will release a video in the next week or two to explain the reasoning and what, if anything, will replace it.

Meanwhile, here are a selection of toons that didn't make the cut in November.

BY-ELECTIONS 01.12.22


Labour have held the City of Chester following a by-election to replace the disgraced Chris Matheson.  Matheson resigned in October after a parliamentary watchdog upheld two claims of 'serious sexual misconduct' against him.  Despite the circumstances, Labour candidate Samantha Dixon extended her party's majority from 6,164 to 10,974.  The Tory runner-up saw her party's share of the vote shrink by almost 16 percentage points, making this their worst result in Chester since 1832 (yes, you read that correctly).  The turnout was just 41.2 per cent.

The Labour victor in Chester is a local councillor and former council leader.  Samantha Dixon has been a member of Cheshire West and Chester Council since 2011.  A university graduate (par for the course it seems these days), she was awarded an MBE earlier this year for political service.

Meanwhile, the Conservatives did not fair much better in Thursday's council by-elections.  They were defending three seats and lost all of them - two to the Lib Dems and one to Labour.  Tory vote share was down in all five of the seats up for grabs.  Conversely, Labour's vote share was up in all but one.

The Conservatives plummeted to third place in Norfolk, where a Lib Dem surge pipped Labour to the gain by just eight votes.  In Southampton it was another tight race, with Labour taking the seat from the Tories by 13 votes.  In Waverley the Tories were trounced by a Lib Dem surge, aided by the absence of a Green candidate.

It was an easy hold for the Greens in Arun, West Sussex, while Labour held off the SNP in West Lothian and extended their lead in the process.  The latter by-election saw Alex Salmond's Alba Party finish last.

Absentees this week were the Lib Dems and UKIP in Arun, UKIP in Norfolk, the Greens in Waverley and the Scottish Family Party in West Lothian.

NEIL OLIVER'S MONOLOGUE 26.11.22

This week Neil directly addresses the concerns of people who have personally taken the time to write to him, expressing their fear for what the future holds.  It's not they who ought to be afraid, says our libertarian hero, but rather the very establishment who are instigating such fear in the first place.  As it has always been the case, the people are many and the politicians are few: "We the people, the sovereign people of this country, don't just hold the power - we are the power".

Neil imagines the possibilities if we acted as one to disarm the system, but sadly it is but a pipe dream.  Too many are distracted by sport and TV, Australian 'jungle' capers and the World Cup, while others are only too happy to allow the state to dictate their lives as they scorn free thinkers on the right.

The middle section of this monologue is like a checklist of concerns for Brits who voted Conservative in 2019, but who got nothing conservative in return.  Uncontrolled immigration, rampant crime, grooming gangs, waiting lists - the writing is on the wall for a hapless Tory party whose backbenchers are beginning to stand down well in advance of the next general election.

The final third of Neil's monologue uses the examples of two British historical figures to ram home his point of collective power.  It almost sounds like a socialist call to action and indeed the first of his historical examples is the 1920s Labour activist Mary Barbour, but those were the days when Labour were the working class - rather than the middle class university educated globalist career politicians of today.  And we must never forget that the globalist in chief Klaus Schwab is the one with a bust of Vladimir Lenin in his office.

Neil's closing remarks include the legend: "If we continue to comply, we build our own prison around ourselves".  It's imperative that people on the right understand what this means, because sadly there are still people who swallow the establishment narrative all too easily.

COUNCIL BY-ELECTIONS 24.11.22


Five seats were up for grabs in this week's council action.  On the unusual polling day of Wednesday, the Ashfield Independents held easily.  The following day it was a routine hold for Labour in Sefton, while there were three Conservative defences.  The Tories lost a seat each to Labour (Bassetlaw) and the Lib Dems (Isle of Wight).  They held their other defence by the wafer thin majority of three votes.

Absentees this week were UKIP in Ashfield, the Conservatives in Sefton and an independent in Warrington.

BYRNE WINS BY 12 VOTES

In a blow to Keir Starmer, hard left MP Ian Byrne has narrowly fended off an attempt to deselect him from the ultra safe seat of Liverpool West Derby.  His place on the Westminster gravy train was being challenged by two councillors, one of whom dropped out of the contest on the day of the vote.  Cllr Kimberley Whitehead, of Hyndburn Borough Council, withdrew hours before Sunday's vote and backed Cllr Anthony Lavelle for the seat.  This was surely a realisation (or a nudge from above) that the pair of them standing would split the vote and give Byrne an easy win.

It was the correct assumption, as Byrne ended up defeating the Liverpool councillor by the slender margin of just twelve votes.

The hustings meeting and subsequent vote is said to have been a tense affair, with security guards on the doors and claims that some members were 'barred from entry'.  Byrne had accused the Lavelle camp of 'intimidation' earlier in the campaign, claims which were furiously denied.  The MP had also been threatening 'legal action', presumably in the event that he lost the vote.

Byrne was congratulated upon his victory by many of his comrades in the Socialist Campaign Group, including Jeremy Corbyn, Zarah Sultana and Nadia Whittome.


Also congratulating Byrne was the member for Poplar and Limehouse.  Apsana Begum is thought to be the third hard left MP to face the threat of deselection, although there is still no news of challengers.  Her London colleague Sam Tarry was deselected last month.

TRUMP RESTORED TO TWITTER

In the last two days a number of high profile banned Twitter accounts have been restored, culminating in the reinstatement of Donald Trump on Sunday morning.  Dr Jordan Peterson, Andrew Tate and the Babylon Bee are some of those whose accounts have been restored, but Musk was reticent to bring back Trump and instead delegated the decision to Twitter users by way of a poll.  A whopping 15 million voted and it was a win for the Donald...


Trump's account was swiftly restored following the poll, but he has not tweeted yet and maintains that he won't return to the platform.  With an election two years away it remains to be seen whether he will resist the temptation to broaden his audience and stay embedded in his Truth Social echo chamber.

Many of the returning accounts have enjoyed a boom in following, but none more so than Trump who - despite not being active on the platform - his account has amassed an extra 30 million followers since reappearing this morning.  At the time of writing his following stood at more than 83 million, compared to 36.4 million for Biden's personal account and 27.5 million for the presidential account.


It is not clear who else Musk will be restoring to Twitter, but the list is endless and many names have trended as calls grow for more high profile conservatives and libertarians to be reinstated.  One conservative who will not be returning any time soon is Alex Jones.  Jones has been in the news a lot lately in relation to the colossal Sandy Hook lawsuit and left-wing journalists were keen to know if he would be one of those returning.  It was a negative from Musk, but Jones has been very gracious in response, posting a conciliatory video on Gab.

Perhaps Jones will be restored at some point in the future, so too the likes of David Icke, Dr Robert Malone and other Covid sceptics.  Either way, Musk is already moving in the right direction.

NEIL OLIVER'S MONOLOGUE 19.11.22

The betrayal of Britain by our leaders is the theme for this week's monologue, in a similar vein to last week's excellent piece.  The net zero scam climate scam is first up in Neil's line of attack, followed by the disastrous Covid mandates which combined with the former are clearly aimed at reducing the world's population.  Thousands of Brits continue to drop dead inexplicably, week in and week out - while the mass media says nothing and politicians to push the clot shots.

Crypto scams, Ukraine money laundering, Bill Gates' land grab and the invasion on our southern shores are all touched upon by Mr Oliver.  Globalist plots affect us all and the destruction of the British nation and her people is summed up in this sentence: "The powers that be are intent on breaking the morale and spirit of the British, transforming us into a compliant, dependent, unquestioning herd - ready to accept whatever indignity is foisted upon us next".

What follows is a demolition of the dastardly CCP-adoring Jeremy Hunt.  What will it take for our countrymen and women to wake up to the unspeakable and very deliberate evils being committed upon them?

BRYANT BACKFIRES AGAIN

Kate Andrews and Chris Bryant

Prolific tweeter Chris Bryant has been humiliated online yet again after the Labour MP sparked an argument built on sand.  The Rhondda MP was clearly upset about the presence of economist Kate Andrews on the BBC's Question Time and tagged the programme in a tweet complaining about her 'role' in the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA).  Unfortunately for Chris, Andrews picked up the tweet the following morning and pointed out that she did not work for the IEA...


Kate has not worked for the IEA for three years and Bryant was quickly on his arse clutching at straws.  The best he could do was a screenshot dated 2016 that referred to Andrews to back up his non-existent argument.  She fired back minutes later and a more formal apology ensued.


If Bryant had bothered to check he would have found that Andrews' past involvement with the IEA was referred to on Question Time's social media accounts, as seen here.

It's desperately embarrassing, but nothing new for a man who takes selfies in his underpants and posts them on gay dating sites.

Oh, and why was he so upset about Kate Andrews being on Question Time in the first place?  Because she repeatedly exposes the real reason behind the cost of living crisis.  And Chris Bryant - along with everyone else in the Parliamentary Labour Party - voted for it.
